Here's a list of the Chiefs free agents.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs officially move into the offseason now that their season is over without a playoff berth. The Chiefs  have work to do on the free agency front, none more important than LB Justin Houston, who is scheduled to be a free agent when the new league year begins in March. The Chiefs will not let him go under any circumstances so I expect him to get franchise tagged if there is not a long-term deal in place. Still, the Chiefs hope to do a long-term deal with him because it will help the cap space in 2015.

The Chiefs have a number of starters who are free agents, including C Rodney Hudson, G Mike McGlynn, OL Jeff Linkenbach, CB Chris Owens, RT Ryan Harris, LB Josh Mauga and S Ron Parker.

The Chiefs could sign some of these players before the new league year begins in March. But they won't sign all of them.

The unrestricted free agents are free to sign with any team if their contract expires at the start of the new league year in March. The Chiefs own the rights to their restricted and exclusive rights free agents if they want to keep them.

This list of Chiefs free agents comes from Over The Cap. Note that contracts are not always publicly accessible so we'll need to wait for the Chiefs to confirm this list at some point. But here's what the Chiefs 2015 free agents look like.
